Cleveland outfielder Grady Sizemore is expected to travel to Vail, Colorado, for a consultation this coming week on his injured right knee.
Sizemore played only 71 games this season after appearing in 33 in 2010. He opened this season on the DL as he recovered from surgery on his left knee in May of 2010.
Then, Sizemore hurt his right knee and sustained a hernia on the same play while sliding into a base this May. Sizemore also underwent abdominal surgery July 21st.
Sizemore finished the 2011 season with a .224 batting average with 10 home runs and 32 runs batted in.
Sizemore has a club option for $9 million for the 2012 season.
Indians broadcaster Jim Rosenhaus believes the health of Sizemore will go a long way in determining the direction both sides takes.
